Presentation Transcript

  1. Background • Original CJIN Voice Trunking Network (VTN) • Recommended in the 1995 CJIN Legislative Study by Price Waterhouse • Re-Validated in CJIN re-fresh study in 2002 by Gartner Group

  2. Myths and Misconceptions • 800 MHz won’t work in the mountains • Colorado • Utah • Only a new radio system for the Highway Patrol • A lot less headaches • A lot less money

  3. High Profile ExamplesLack of Interoperability • Air Crash at RDU 1994 • Murrah Building,Okalahoma City 1995 • Hurricane Fran 1996 • Hurricane Floyd 1999 • Columbine High School 1999 • Twin Towers, New York City 2001

  4. Voice Interoperability Plan for Emergency Responders

  5. Tactical Solution • Temporary solution for interoperable emergency communications • 17 remote fixed site communications gateways • Controlled at SHP Communications Centers • Pre-equipped with radios for locals

  6. Tactical Solution Issues • Memorandums of Agreement between Agencies • Operational Plans • Plain English (no 10 codes) • Who authorizes interconnect • Disconnect procedures • System Capacity impact

  7. Mobile SolutionTactical • 3 mobile interoperable communications platforms to eliminate diminished capacity for extended periods • Pre-positioned across the state • Long term incidents / events • More than 6 to 8 hours • Enhanced unit to support 800 MHz systems and operate as a standalone communications system • Large special events

  8. What will the Tactical Solution provide • Provide temporary interoperable communications with other public safety agencies on-demand during emergencies. • Provide interoperable communications with those agencies from surrounding jurisdictions that may come to assist you. • Mobile solution can provide temporary communications system if there is a catastrophic system failure state or local.

  9. Strategic Solution • Statewide 800 MHz trunked radio system available for all emergency responders. • APCO 25 compliant • Individual talk groups for agencies • Mutual aid talk groups • VIPER is the infrastructure • 95% in-street portable coverage • Agencies responsible for subscriber units • Subscriber units from multiple manufacturers • Governance Committee with representatives from participating local agencies

  10. What will the Strategic Solution provide? • Provide locals with a state-of-the-art, robust APCO 25 CAI compliant communications system • Multi manufacturer radios – the option to buy from multiple vendors. • Autonomous talk groups – agency specific talk groups. • Coverage redundancy – if a transmitter fails in your area you benefit from infrastructure in surrounding areas.

  11. What will the Strategic Solution provide? • Interoperable communications daily with a single radio – improved information sharing, quicker response times when resources are needed, enhanced safety for emergency responders, better service to our citizens • Statewide roaming - ability to respond to emergencies outside normal jurisdictions • Mutual aid talk groups

  12. Industry Partnerships • Public Partners • 39 sites identified that may be re-useable for the VIPER Strategic Solution from Progress Energy. • Duke • Dominion Power • Time Warner Cable • AAA Towers • Hopefully we can encourage other utility companies to participate.

  13. VIPER Costs • Intellirepeaters $52,185,000 • Microwave $34,085,000 • Zone Controllers $ 7,200,000 • Antennas & Dish Install $ 6,850,000 • Generators & UPS $ 7,125,000 • Towers $32,742,460 • Land & Permits $ 6,845,000 • Network Building $ 6,500,000 • Risk Mitigation $20,000,000 • Equipment $ 4,396,671 • Personnel $ 4,581,786 • Vehicles $ 1,600,000

  14. How’d we get these figures • Construction Costs • Equipment Costs • Personnel Costs • Recurring Costs

  15. VIPER Recurring Costs • Personnel • Training • Software and hardware maintenance • Emergency contingency costs • Utility bills & site maintenance • Tools and equipment • Vehicles • Phased with implementation

  16. VIPER funding to date • Law Enforcement Terrorism Prevention Program grants $8,829,032 • State Homeland Security Grants $21,463,757 • Urban Area Strategic Initiative Grant (Charlotte) $1,045,000 • NC Legislature $500,000 • Totaling $31,327,789

  17. VIPER Summary • 238 transmitter sites • 120 will require construction of a new tower • 59 of these will be rebuilding existing towers • 61 will require brand new construction sites • 118 towers can be reused • Requires 80 support personnel • $4,581,706 in annual salaries • $1,600,000 in Vehicles • $4.4m in hand tools and technical equipment
